Second Grade--OxCart Man Season Popplet

Each year second grade students read the book The OxCart Man by Donald Hall and Barbara Clooney. We spend quite a bit of time discussing the roles each family member plays during each season. The book does not specify what the family does during the summer, so we brainstorm what likely jobs they would have (watering plants, pulling weeds, planting some crops).

Using Popplet students created a wheel listing several jobs for each season, who completed the job, and a pencil sketch of the job. Since this assignment was pretty complex, students planned on paper before transferring their work to the iPad.

Due to technical difficulties we were having that day, none of the work has been transferred off the iPads yet.
